Chicago Vacation :: For Spring Break 2014 we took the kids to Chicago for three nights and four days.  We crammed as much fun as we could into those four days and had adventures all over the Windy City.  I’m going to share our adventures with you in a series of installments so you can see pictures from our excursions and maybe find some inspiration for planning your own trip to Chicago!Field Museum of Chicago

Field Museum:

Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History is a treasure trove of historical artifacts and displays.  You can learn so much by spending a day at the Field Museum.  We made the mistake of not scheduling enough time to spend at the Field Museum so our visit was a bit rushed and we didn’t get to see nearly enough exhibits, but what we did get to see was awesome!  We learned about Ancient Egypt, precious gems, life on Earth (all 4 billion years of it!), dinosaurs (Sue!), life in the Pacific and MORE.  And we didn’t even get to visit all of the exhibits!  The Field Museum is on our list of places to re-visit next time we go to Chicago.

Here are some Highlights from our trip to the Field Museum:
